What is this?
The Casa Loma Escape Series is an evolution of the escape game format. It is a series of immersive adventure games set at Casa Loma. The world of Murdoch Mysteries has now arrived at Casa Loma and has taken residency at the Stable Coachman’s House. The players will solve puzzles, unravel mysteries and rub shoulders with the colourful characters of Murdoch’s time.
Does the game take place on the Murdoch set?
No, the game takes place at the Stable Coachman’s House on the grounds of Casa Loma in downtown Toronto. The room is designed as the Incident Room, an as-yet-unseen area of Station House No. 4.
Will I be 'locked' in the room?
No one is ever actually locked up in the Murdoch Mysteries escape adventure. The rooms are intricate and thematic. You will never be forced into a tight enclosed space. Anyone can exit the game at any time – however, once outside, there is no re-admittance.
If I played the Murdoch game before, is this one any different?
The puzzles and narrative for Murdoch Mysteries will be the same as the initial game that was at George Brown House. The difference is that the game will be built into the Stable Coachman’s House on the grounds of Casa Loma; so the layout and game mechanics might differ slightly, but generally the game is the same Murdoch Mysteries escape adventure as the original one.

Wouldn't this be more fun after a few drinks?

Are there any health risks while playing the game?
No. None of our games require extraneous physical exertion or interaction with hazardous materials.
Is the game wheelchair accessible?

Where do I go if I am playing the Murdoch Mysteries experience?
All of our games in our Casa Loma Escape Series take place on Casa Loma Grounds. However, our Murdoch Mysteries Escape Game takes place in “The Stable Coachman’s House”, attached to the Casa Loma Stables. The address is 330 Walmer Rd and it is a 1 minute walk from the Castle. The Game takes place inside and is fully heated in the winter.
Real-life escape games are a type of physical adventure game in which people are locked in a room with other participants and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of puzzles, find clues, and escape the room within a set time limit.

Location & Contact
Stable Coachman’s House – Casa Loma
In 1905, Sir Henry Pellatt purchased land which had been the private golf course of Albert Austin of nearby Spadina. The following year, anticipating construction of Casa Loma, he hired E.J. Lennox to design and build these stables, estimated to have cost $250,000. The stalls were made of Spanish mahogany and the floors were covered in tiles set in a zigzag pattern so that the horses would not slip. When the main castle was completed, it was connected to the stables by a tunnel. The house directly next to the stables is the home of the stable coachman where he would conveniently be able to tend to the horses in the stables for Sir Henry Pellatt.
